Continuity Gauge to Check RFC's Dimensions

In the drawing, FIG. 1 is the assembly to be checked. It consists of parts in FIG. 2 and in FIG. 3, which are the spring, or RFC shown in FIG. 2, and the cap, shown in FIG. 3.

The sides of the cap, FIG. 3, are used to measure the height of the RFC, FIG. 2, as indicated in the assembly of FIG. 1.

The Cap in FIG. 1 is located in a base 3, FIG.4, and is positioned to contact the metal block 6. A continuity light probe 4 is attached to the block 6. The metal pins 1, in FIG. 4, located in a plastic block 2 make contact with the RFC in the cap C, completing a circuit to turn a light 4 "on" when the pins 1 are touched. The pins are of a sufficient height to be touched by the RFC only when the height of the assembly C exceeds its maximum dimension. Therefore, if no light appears, the assembly is correct. If a light appears, the assembly C is defective or it is over the maximum dimension.
